Inspired: Walk Don't Run

I found this movie on Netflix and am now completely obsessed. It's a fun little romantic comedy set in Tokyo during the 1966 Olympics. Cary Grant is his debonair self. Samantha Eggar is adorable with her red hair. Jim Hutton is handsome and tall.

But the styling...oh, that's the best part! The sixties suits, hats and gloves. The perfectly appointed Japanese apartment. The modern architecture. The cars, the kids with bowl cuts, the all-women jazz band in pink dresses with beehives. It is just perfect!

My husband and I love Walk, Don't Run. It's one of our faves. And it was Cary Grant's last which always makes it bittersweet.

When I saw that film I was upset that Jim Hutton wasn't still acting because he was great in the role (and handsome!) It was a sad relief to find he had died young and had not been left behind in the changing mores of Hollywood.
